Collaborating to Build a Learning Organization

As I grow as a school leader, every day is an opportunity for learning and growth. Working with my colleagues and my team, I know we can build a learning organization we all want to be a part of that both nurtures student innovation and learning. And as my professional learning continues, I will embrace the forward movement as I did as a teacher, fearlessly. At the end of the day, it is all about kids and they deserve the best.

Fostering a Reading Community With FlipGrid

One thing is clear when reading is presenting in a way that students enjoy, the love of the written word is nurtured. The more we give students the opportunity to choose what they are reading and then allow them to be creative in how they share what they've read, the more they will persist in their reading.

Audiobooks Are the Answer to My Reading Backlog

As professionals, it is important for us to stay up to date with important new ideas and research, but there isn't always enough time in the day to add to the already long list of things to do. So why not use a tool that can help with that?

As a classroom teacher I was fearless and now as a leader I have to be too. Adults, however are far scarier sometimes than the high school seniors I used to teach. I'll just keep smiling and practicing what I preach and I know that change will happen.

'Can't' Is Not An Acceptable Answer

As we continue to explore our current practices and determine what's best for our kids, we need to keep an open mind and thoroughly examine the impact of our choices. The world has changed too much to keep doing things the same way.

During Testing Season, a Nod to How the Other Side Lives

We must answer the call to action to make education tenable for all students, educators, and leaders. The world is changing and since we don't always know how we are all contributing, we must start a conversation to make it better for everyone.

Make Co-Teaching a Part of Your Weekly Leadership Routine

This time in the classroom is more important than anything else I do. Interacting with my team and their students, getting to know the environment and seeing their willingness to take risks and build on their own professionalism and practice goes a long way. Trying new things may not always go smoothly, but I want them to know they have a partner in me; I'm invested in their success because it matters to our students.

Will Today Be the Day They Figure It Out?

Sometimes I continue to judge myself on some very unrealistic standards. A wise friend once told me to treat myself as I would treat a mentee and be kind to myself remembering what my beginning years as a teacher looked like (the Cliff Notes version is that it was bad... serious understatement, but you get the point).
